Sunday 14th January 2018 - The Cloud G/SP-015.
After my late night getting home from a gig, I only awoke at 11am. Almost immediately, Marianne advised me that I wasn’t going out, because we were all going out for a walk and lunch at midday. I said I’d be back by then, and that everyone wouldn’t be ready by then anyway. Maz was not best impressed, but I went for my daily activation anyway.
Enjoyable walk, as ever, and plenty of people on the hill, as ever. Called on 2m FM on the VX7, as ever, and got four contacts, as ever.
The pattern of four QSOs I get is getting familiar too:
- A S2S.
- Someone else.
- A couple who are both licensed!
In this case, the S2S was Adrian G4AZS/P p on Brown Clee Hill G/WB-002, the ‘someone else’ was G4NTY, and the couple, on this occasion, was not King and Queen of Heald Green, but the Prince and Princess of Rhos - Steven 2W0JYN and Steph MW6SHJ.
Back home at 1203z (which Marianne classified as “late”) and out for a lovely walk around the full perimeter of Fernilee reservoir in the High Peak. Followed by a great meal with great beer at the Beehive in Combs. £17.50 for three courses - generous portions too
I will now add the photos to the Billinge Hill report above ^^^^^
